- Long DescriptionExpo Milano 2015 is a Universal exposition which will take place in Milan from 1 May to 31 October 2015.
The Theme of Expo... Milano 2015, "Feeding the planet, energy for life"brings forward a truly global challenge: is it possible to ensure sufficient, good, healthy and sustainable food for all mankind?
This edition of the Expo is meant to become a milestone of planetary debate on food and sustainability and will be a platform for political discussions and policy initiatives on these issues.
The theme cuts across several EU policies, including: agriculture; industry; trade; development and humanitarian aid; food safety and quality; energy; climate change, environment; education and last but not least, research and innovation.
Expo Milan 2015 therefore represents a unique opportunity for the EU to reinforce its role as a global actor in the global discussion about the evergrowing issues of food and sustainability.
- General InformationThe Joint research Centre (JRC ) of the European Commission is the Commission's in-house science service, which mission is t...o provide EU policies with independent, evidence-based scientific and technical support throughout the whole policy cycle.
The JRC has been chosen to coordinate the EU's participation in Expo 2015 because of its broad knowledge of the theme of the Expo, and also for the proximity of Ispra, the third site of the Commission in number of staff where about 2 200 Commission staff are present.
